CM Chandrababu Naidu applauds PV Sindhu for wining Korea Open title

She is placed fourth in the tournament, and needs to be at her best to beat Minatsu Mitani in the opening round.

The Hyderabadi shuttler then staged a brilliant fight back to take a big lead in the mid-break of the decider and finally win the trophy despite a late surge from Okuhara. Interestingly, she had also claimed the bronze at the 2014 World Championships along with Sindhu.

The Rio Olympics silver medalist defeated Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in the final of Korea Open and thus will climb up in the rankings.

If Sindhu moves ahead, she might run into another Japanese, the unseeded Nozomi Okuhara, for the third time in as many tournaments.

World No. 4 Sindhu, who had won the China Super Series Premier past year and clinched the India Super Series and Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold this season, had earlier settled with the bronze medal at the World Badminton Championship after going down against Okuhara 19-21, 22-20, 20-22 in the finals in Glasgow. Saina will take on Thailand shuttler Pornpawee Chochuwong in an exciting opening match.

Unseeded Saina might clash with two-time former world champion and reigning Olympic champion Carolina Marin in the second round if the Spaniard can get across China's Chen Xiaoxin. The first in the series i.e the Indian Open has already been slinched by PV Sindhu.

HS Prannoy and Sameer Verma will also return to action and will be up against Danish Anders Antonsen and a qualifier, respectively.

Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy, will meet fifth seeded Thai pair of Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai in the opening round for the mixed doubles.
